2021 New Georges Jam
New Georges and the 2021 Jam are grateful for the generous support of Jody Falco and Jeffrey Steinman.
The biennial process of finding new members for The New Georges Jam (our artist-led and collaboration-based performance gym for early- to mid-career theatermakers) was delayed a bit. like so much these days. Pretty exciting, though, once we got it done! Welcome new Jammers Raquel Almazan, Cristina Angeles, Lyndsey Bourne, Emily Gardner Xu Hall, Amina Henry, Kimille Howard, Romana Isabella, Abigail Jean-Baptiste, Kedian Keohan, Ruth Tang and Ashley Teague!
They join returnees Sarah Einspanier, Estefanía Fadul and Julia May Jonas (The Jam’s current co-leaders), Lydia Blaisdell, Deepali Gupta, Sarah Hughes, Dara Malina, Rebecca Martinez, Eli Nixon, Jolene Noelle, and Kat Yen! And as changing times bring changing options, continuing Jammers Bleu Beckford-Burrell, Lindsay Joelle and Charly Evon Simpson will participate in the Jam community this winter/spring without presenting work, and Miranda Haymon and Taylor Reynolds are taking a Jam sabbatical! Meet them ALL below (new members in yellow, continuing in blue, community/sabbaticalers in gray).
